community in 2008 president obama got 96% of the black vote, in this election he got 93%. so 3% -- he got three points less in this election. i don't think it had anything to do with voter suppression and all that kind of stuff. that three points didn't go to republicans because republicans don't -- >> respond, judith, to that, because i hear it. >> let me continue to respond. you have had a lot of intro -- >> there's more coming. >> the fact is i think that 3% it didn't go to republicans and it didn't go to the president, but it didn't go to republicans because i think republicans have dropped the ball in terms of trying to establish deeper relationships with these communities, and the fact that someone might have speculation about voter suppression and so forth, it tends to carry a lot more weight -- >> the problem is that there's -- >> -- no credibility. >> the problem with this isn't speculation. we have admissions by governor crist. he has -- there's no reason for him to lie about the fact that the republican party in florida actually did this so that democrats could lose, and then o

, takeover of health care, that fanned the flames of the post-obama tea party protest. but, of course, most of the actual republicans who were actually elected back then were elected because they ran ads like this. >> congressman brad ellsworth said he would protect our seniors. but when he got to washington, congressman ellsworth voted for the largest cuts in medicare history, over $500 billion. robin carnahan supports $500 billion in medicare cuts, hurting seniors most. rand paul doesn't support higher medicare deductibles for seniors. conway distracts with negative ads to hide his support for obama care, which cuts medicare by $500 billion. >> that was 2010. fast forward to this year's election and the same principle carries through. each side tried to convince voters that the other guy wanted to take the hatchet to medicare. >> the biggest, coldest power play of all in obama care came at the expense of the elderly. $716 billion, funneled out of medicare by president obama >> my plan's already extended medicare by nearly a decade. their plan ends medicare as we know it. >> on medicare, f

know firsthand that every election carries a lot of messages, but president obama himself has concluded that the one just past was sort of an impetus to get the middle class back together financially and otherwise. and as governor of michigan, the best thing that we could do for this nation right now as you know former governor of michigan is to get balance back in the work force. and i think there were very strong messages that the nation, as evidenced by votes in your old home state of michigan, ohio pennsylvania, really throughout the industrial midwest, was saying to the congress specifically, we need a manufacturing policy of our own. we need to have as many as two and a half times more women and men in the manufacturing sector, governor than we have today. and they have to be paid fairly, they have to have fair trade policies that sustain their employment. we just have to get this economy as you said repeatedly, back in balance and that's probably the best place to start. >> jennifer: totally agree. totally agree
: there is a lot of relevancy to that because who won the presidential election? president obama. he's holding the cards right now and if, in fact they do go over the cliff will he actually be true to what he said before, which is let's do this short-term deal now, even though it's really not a deal, it's a one-sided deal and then after get over the fiscal, then we'll sit down and actually talk some serious business. but has that really been done in the last three or four years? do you really believe that they will talk serious business, which would include both sides of the fence tax increase potentially, and spending cuts? do you believe that they'll actually do that? >> steve: you know what? charles krauthammer in his column today writes about once upon a time, ronald reagan took that deal where the democrats said okay, let's get a deal now and then we'll talk about cuts later. he never got the cuts and he always was remorseful of the fact that he didn't get the cuts when he made the deal. >> gretchen: the other stories
's just been re-elected, he's the winner. the republicans were vanquished and i suspect president obama says i'll be calling the shots here. >> there is still a month left. we've got to have something to talk about for the rest of the month, right? you have to kind of look at this as sort of a poker game. everybody's going to sort of try to barter for as best a deal as they can get and know they are going to have to make concessions along the way. what he did is he went for it. he said look, i'm going to do $1.6 trillion in tax hikes, only $400 billion in cuts. he conveniently did not cut social security, medicare and medicaid which poll as the most popular programs and things that americans actually want. and if you look at it, 60% of americans actually support the idea of raising taxes and that of course goes beyond those that just voted for him. so he's going with what are the popular issues that i know i can get americans around me and i'm gointo put republicans in a really tight spot where they're going to have to either say look, we're going to make cuts to programs that we know t
this morning. we have a lot to get to on this thursday, december 6. >> including president obama actually making his appeal to business leaders on his tax plan. he's now reaching out following a very tough election campaign. >> and overseas, protests get violent in egypt where the once stable nation appears to be on the verge of crisis. first, let's get to the news live at 5:30 here at 30 rock in new york city. we begin with 25 days to go until the year end fiscal cliff deadline for the first time in days president obama and speaker boehner spoke on the phone yesterday. both men agreeing not to publicly characterize how the conversation went. but the stalemate in negotiations entered bold new territory yesterday with treasury secretary tim geithner suggesting the white house is ready to go off the cliff if republicans refuse to raise taxes on the top 2%. >> if republicans do not agree to that, is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff? >> absolutely. again, there's no prospect to an agreement that doesn't involve those rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthiest member
to understand. you are saying then for pr purposes, they should give into obama on the tax rate. >> not exactly. well, yeah, i guess i am -- >> you're saying obama, who is -- we don't have a revenue problem, ann. >> we lost the election, sean. gerri: what do you think of this? as a strategy, maybe it's the right thing? acknowledge that the american people voted for the president, put him back in office. it's all on you. >> well, it's simple, i think. republicans are cognizant of what the people said. the plan they put out raises revenue on rich people. they are asking for the president to give a response including both tax proposals and the spending proposals that are necessary to make the plan be balanced, and they'll negotiate from there, from the second day after the election, speaker boehner said we hear the american people, they want washington to work, that means compromise, leadership, but, you know, we're not seeing all the pieces yet. gerri: what do you think of the idea of saying, okay, democrats, it's on you. you want to raise taxes? you want to flirt with putting the economy into re
of president obama's nominees to the district and circuit courts. during the last presidential election, 2008, the senate confirmed a total of 28 judges, 24 district and four circuit. this presidential election year, we have exceeded those numbers. we have confirmed five circuit nominees, and mr. shea's confirmation will be the 33rd district judge confirmed. that then adds up to a total of 38 judges this year versus 28 in the last presidential election year. finally, i would note that mr. shea was not reported out of committee by a unanimous vote. there were concerns about part of his record, and that resulted in a few no votes in committee, but i want members on my side of the aisle to know that i supported the nomination in committee and i will do so today. i'm not telling other people how they should vote, but it was split on our side. but for those who argue that republicans have delayed this nomination just to obstruct, that is not the case. i congratulate mr. shea on his confirmation -- at least expected confirmation, and i will put the remainder of my statement in the record. the presi
. >> our problem with president obama isn't that he is a bad person. our problem is that he is a bad president. [cheers] >> bill: factor exclusive senator marco rubio in his first post election interview. he is now emerging as one of the leaders of the republic party. also tonight, dennis miller on paying higher taxes. and charlie brown kicked to the cush -- curb in arkansas by a pastor. >> everything i do turns into a disaster. >> oh, good grief. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. no talking points memo this evening because we have two very important interviews to conduct here. in just a few moments senator marco rubio in first post election chat and boy do i have some questions for him. first the lead story, bob costas as we reported last night the nbc sportscaster has created a storm of confusion. last sunday night during a national football game, he delivered a commentary at halftime condemning what he calls the gun culture in america. some folks got angry because
.s.a. is is for a sitting president to pretty much ignore the best interest of the folks. president obama is doing something very strange right now. very strange and you should know about it. he only won the election by 3.5 million votes out of more than 120 million cast. he knows we're a divided nation answered also knows millions of americans don't believe is he looking out for them. he also knows that we have a budget situation that could send the country into bankruptcy. so it is on the president to solve the problem. this week, treasury secretary tim geithner offered the president's plan. it would raise taxes for high earning americans by $1.6 trillion over the next decade. that's on income, capital gains and dividends. also limit deductions for those folks. also return the estate tax to a whopping 45% for wealthy families. but on the spending front. there really isn't anything substantial on the table. nothing. the president basically saying i'm not going to cut much. and blank you if you don't like it. >> it's not just a bad deal. this is really an insulting deal. what geithner offered what you showe
confirmation, the senate will have confirmed 159 of president obama's nominees to the district of circuit courts. during the last presidential election year, -- 2008, that is -- the senate confirmed a total of 28 judges, 24 district and four circuit. this presidential election year, we have exceeded those numbers. we have confirmed five circuit nominees and judge grimm's will be the 32nd district judge confirmed. that is a total of 37 judges this year versus 28 in the last presidential election year. so once again i want to set the record straight and i hope i've done so. republicans have been more than fair to this president and his judicial nominees. i support this nomination and will put the balance of my statement in the record. i suggest -- i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from georgia. mr. chambliss: i'd ask that the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. chambliss: i ask unanimous consent igor demensky be allowed floo
shouldn't pay anything at all and as you go up you pay a little more. and that's what president obama ran on. we had a huge election for the senate, where he democrats whers picked up seat. for the presidency, for a race that was supposed to be president romney's, according to his people, was president obama's mainly because president obama stood up for the middle class and said, when it comes to taxes, we all have to pay our fair share; no more, no less. so when you tell your friends that the president wants to give you your tax cut, you should tell them also it's being held up by the republicans in congress who are sitting on a bill that passed july 25, 2012. 98% of the american people will get their tax break continued, and only income over $250,000 will be taxed at the same rates when bill clinton was president. let's take a look back at those days. were they harsh for people? no. we had more millionaires created, i remember, in those days than we had in generations. you know why? because when the middle class is strong and he invested in the middle class, he invested in our people, t
that they wanted somebody else to pay their bills. and i saw president obama on tv about a month or so before election and he wasn't concerned about the deficit. but i have a question that i have been wondering. does all these people on medicaid that obama put on medicaid, does that come out of a medicare program? >> guest: yes, it does. it certainly does. and one of the reasons actually i like the proposal on medicaid is essentially to block the grant program back to the states this is not a cut in spending but we limit the future increases to population growth and inflation may be in plus one, something like that. we found the state's do exactly what we did with welfare in the 1990's which most people on both sides argue work well. the great thing about the proposal is that it is some new stuff. a lot of it has worked in other contexts. what is new is he had the political courage and skill to put it together in a package that you can pass out. >> host: the gop plan is to create a fiscal crisis so it can privatize social six devotee and medicare. >> guest: absolutely not true. what's creatin
obama is in asia. his first trip when he was elected was here in ottawa. his first trip for his reelection was asia. you both you asia as important both of you are committed to enhancing free trade. you are looking at 50 trade deals. i wanted to ask you -- when our organization was founded 25 years ago, we were founded to be a proponent of free trade. there are not enough voices on either side of the border that point out the benefits. that is why we started it. my observation is that canadians are more open to free trade than americans. their message is of protectionism. what are your observations? what do you attribute the difference to? >> in negotiations on trade agreement -- we are and 50 to go she asians. one is with the european union. ppp is nother big one. we are in the later stages of the european negotiations. that is 27 negotiations. there has been a chairman to shift in this country since i got involved in politics in the mid 1980's. one of the ships have trade protectionism. it is probably true -- i cannot remember the numbers. it is probably true that canadians we
